Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Senator Tony Hwang (R) to represent the 28th State Senate District, including the towns of Easton, Fairfield, Newtown, Weston and Westport.
Tony Hwang has consistently earned high marks on our Environmental Scorecard, with a perfect 100% in two of the last three Scorecards, and 90% in 2022.
He has been featured as an “Environmental Champion” on CTLCV’s annual Scorecard for several years.
“2022 was a landmark year for climate action. These wins would not be possible without lawmakers like Tony Hwang, who worked hard to pass legislation crucial to reducing pollution from transportation and are committed to the environment,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director.
Tony Hwang is one of CTLCV’s strongest allies in the CT General Assembly. As a policymaker, he highly values bipartisan environmental leadership, open space preservation, and strong protections for Long Island. His active and vocal support for the environment was crucial in passing clean air legislation this session.
Looking ahead, Senator Hwang plans to collaborate with advocates to draft and support legislation that will increase recycling rates, divert compostable food waste, and reduce new waste at the source.
“Tony Hwang is a strong force in politics and environmental advocacy. He is committed to enacting policies that protect our land, air, water, and climate. We need him at the legislature to continue his leadership in the year ahead,” said Brown.
